System of The Month! (or so...)

Our latest System Of The Month winner was submitted by one of our top retailers -Michael Hoatson owner of The Listening Room in Chestertown, Maryland. This is Mike's personal HT system which I think you will agree is pretty nifty.




While I’m a third generation owner of a classic Hi-Fi shop with no TVs on display, I’ve always wondered what would happen if I applied my knowledge of two channel to a Home Theater system.

I started with an entry level processor, the MC-700 from Emotiva. I believe in having a very pure signal path so spending extra money for super fancy EQ didn’t make sense to me.

As we all know, when you have a digital source, it is important to have some tubes in the system to smooth it out. To accomplish this, I got three Altas Magnums that Rogue was kind enough to bridge at the factory into very budget friendly mono-blocks.

Those three mono-blocks are driving a pair of Magnepan 1.7is and a Infinity center that was traded in that I had sitting around. I have a pair of Eminent Technology LFT-8Bs and a LFT-12 center on order that will replace the current speakers.

For a subwoofer I am running a single Rel t5i but I plan to add a second for stereo in the future. I’m also contemplating a fourth Atlas Magnum to drive a pair of Magnepan MC-1s on the rear wall. The wiring is Straightwire for all analog signal paths.
